Serve with sliced mangoes-
Noodles are one of the two main staples in daily Vietnamese meals (rice being the other) with rice noodles more prevalent than wheat. A cool noodle salad, or bun, is one of the most traditional ways of eating rice noodles in Vietnam. It is an amazingly intricate dance of tastes, textures, and temperature. Although you will most likely find bun made with quickly cooked pork at any of the many bun stands in Saigon, my favorite way to order it is with sirloin beef. Here is my version, which earned 5 stars at my dinner table. Make this on a hot summer night with a side of sweet mango slices.
